“This fantasy that it is possible to fish sustainably, legally, and using workers with contracts, making a living wage, and still deliver a five-ounce can of skipjack tuna for $2.50 that ends up on the grocery shelf only days after the fish was pulled from the water thousands of mi,es away. Prices that low and efficiencies that tight come with hidden costs, and it is the manning agencies that help in the hiding.”
Ian Urbina, The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier

“According to an old sailing proverb, below latitude 40° south there is no law, and below 50° south, no God.”
Ian Urbina, The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier

“For all its breathtaking beauty, the ocean is also a dystopian place, home to dark inhumanities. The rule of law—often so solid on land, bolstered and clarified by centuries of careful wordsmithing, hard-fought jurisdictional lines, and robust enforcement regimes—is fluid at sea, if it’s to be found at all.”
Ian Urbina, The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier
